President’s Message

August  2019

What another fast month! Lots going on. On a sad note, one of our past presidents, John Ginesi, passed away in July. John was president in 2009. He was also web master and editor of the Mag News. John was a very active member
in our club and the Orange County Model T Club before he developed Alzheimer’s disease. I talked with Julie, his wife of 30 years, and she asked for Model T’s at John’s memorial service. I said we would get John’s T ready for the service. With the help of Joe Brunn and others, we worked to get the car running. It had not run in over 4 years. What a great bunch of members we have. Two of them had never met John. Thanks to Joe Brunn, Jeff Hood, Tim O’Gorman, Chris and John Craig,and Glenn French. Also thanks to all the Long Beach members and Orange County members that brought their cars and attended the service. I know John was looking down on us seeing his car first in line, ready to tour. The swap meet was a great success. We had lots of sellers and buyers. Please thank Jeff Hood for all his work over the last several months, getting things ready by passing out flyers, time on the phone, sending out mailers, etc. He needs a vacation after this! Also thanks to all the members that came out to help work the meet. We cannot do it without you. Thanks for all of your support in making our club successful.

Happy Summer!
